Why choose our family law solicitors?

We understand that family issues such as relationship breakdown can cause enormous upheaval in your life. It is likely you are feeling insecure, angry, and even a bit lonely.

We are dedicated to providing a personalised experience for all our clients. With our support, we hope you can restore some stability to your life. Here are just a few reasons to choose us to guide you through this time:

Friendly, approachable lawyers

When you initially instruct us, you will be assigned a personal family lawyer who will remain by your side throughout your case. They will accept full responsibility for obtaining the best possible outcome for you and will provide you with regular updates.

You will have a direct line and personal email address for your lawyer so if you have any questions, or simply require some professional support, all you need to do is get in touch.

Sensitive advice and practical solutions

Our family law solicitors’ primary goal is to help you achieve a positive solution so you can move on with your life feeling happy and secure.

Family issues often result in hostility, disagreement and resentment. But, while we understand the desire to have your day in court, legal proceedings tend to be expensive, lengthy and stressful for everyone involved. That is why, wherever possible, we would like to help you find an amicable solution to your matter.

Our family Partners, Shalini Subherwal and Reza Sabzevari, are members of Resolution. We encourage the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods such as family mediation to sort out issues such as divorce financial settlements and arrangements for children, avoiding court in the process.

That being said, we will never pressure you to settle for less than you deserve. We are skilled in court representation and will always keep the best interests of you and your children at heart when providing advice and choosing a course of action.

Accredited expertise 

As well as our Resolution membership, we have been recognised by the Law Society for our knowledge and experience across all types of family law matters. This means our services are regularly moderated and reviewed to ensure we are delivering the highest possible standards of advice.

We are members of the Family Law Accreditation for our general capability across family law and private children law matters.

We are also members of the Children Law Accreditation with particular expertise acting as representatives for children in family law matters.

Amongst our team, Reza Sabzevari and Shalini Subherwal are both accredited family law specialists and Reza is an accredited childrens’ representative.

We are an inclusive law firm dedicated to helping every individual access justice, regardless of personal circumstances. We aim to create a welcoming environment at our offices so, if you have any special requirements or disabilities, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Flexible payment options

We offer a range of flexible payment options designed to suit your individual needs. We will be fully transparent about the amount of legal fees you could incur from the outset of your case, so you can stay in control of your finances.

Our payment options include competitive hourly rates, fixed fees, and reduced fees. We also accept family legal aid for some low income individuals and matters involving public children law and/or domestic violence.
